To promote Unapologetic, Rihanna's seventh album in seven years, the R&B ice queen will play seven secret shows over seven days in seven different cities, and Toronto is the second stop. The catch is, she's only announcing venues once she arrives in town, so keep an eye on her website, Twitter account and of course the NOW Twitter account. It's more likely to be at a club than at one of the stadiums or arenas she usually plays, which should make tonight extra-special for fans who manage to get in.
